"And so corporations and CEOs are going to have to get to know that talent because what's happening when is we're asking really tough questions as we think about where we want to put our treasure. We're asking, you know, what are the diversity equity and inclusion goals of said corporation? Where's the link to the website where I can find that information? How do I know if they're keeping their pledges and promises? How do I know that if I decide to lend my treasures to that organization, whether or not I'll have the opportunity to advance and get promoted and maybe even land in the C suite. So it is really important that that CEOs and leadership really understand that we're asking the tough questions and not just employees but consumers protective perspective employees, you're current employees, consumers, and the media. Winnie, did you know there were 15 reporters that are dedicated to doing nothing but looking into whether or not corporations are keeping their pledges and promises. Not to be mean, but just to help the world, you know, just to be more transparent because here's what we know. Transparency is the best disinfectant. Is there honesty that transparency sharing? We can't just be a stock photo on your website or your brochure. You can't just be a number on your statistics saying you have someone of a diverse background, but like you said, we're never invited to breakfast, never invited to lunch never thought of except when it was necessary to show us as being a part of that diversity figure. And I think that sort of the challenge, but also a great opportunity. And so I'm really excited to welcome you to today's discussion for so many reasons. So I'm really glad that you're sharing this. And for those of you who may not know, February is also black history month. And so it's something that we should celebrate because this is really important..

"Fences have already been knocked down, so it's going to be like this huge community area. There's actually a community garden there too, which is really nice. I plan to have some fresh herbs that I can just pluck and just put it in my food. My customers can just come to my house and have barbecue, you know? So you're gonna have your smokers in what used to be the backyard. No, it's gonna be in the front yard. Oh, okay. Yeah, so everyone can see it. Yes. Well, that's the only spot we can put it. Okay. But it's going to be in our front yard. And it may be a little bit challenging getting through the health department in the city. But to me, it's like, you know, it's just the concept that I want for smoke weed. So I don't know. When customers come to that location, it's going to feel like you're a somebody's house. Yes. Like eating. Yes. I mean, there was an old restaurant franchise called the big yellow house. I don't know if you ever saw it. No, I never. And it was like this old or they made it look like an old multi story house and you're just eating a different rooms and the menu was very down home. Okay. And it was really popular for a hot second. Yeah. But that's kind of what I have in my mind as you're describing this. It just doesn't feel like you're going to a restaurant or to a mall. So we're going to keep it small because we're all about small businesses, right? And I don't want it to be so commercialized. I had people tell me like you should franchises. You should pop up everywhere in the country. I'm like, no, that's not what I want. I don't want a commercialize this. I don't want to suck the soul out of this. And make it a big corporation. I want to keep it small. I want to keep it for the little people. I want to keep it homey and intentional and purposeful. So, you know, I'm super excited about that. That will probably be done by end of 2020. Hopefully sooner. Great end of 2020. 2022. Yeah. Yeah. That's when you have to start all over again with me. Yeah, I don't want to do that. Now I would think, you know, without a weekend pickup, once you have a brick and mortar place, those smokers are going like all the time. I hope so. 'cause you have to have the meats ready when the people come in. It's not like you start smoking when they make their own. No, no, no. We smoke the day before. For the briskets, we have to smoke the day before because it's ten, 12 hours to start around 10 a.m., finish around, ten to 12 midnight. And we put it in a heating cabinet to hold it at temp. And so the next day would be ready for lunch. Okay. So and brisket, you have to rest it. So if you don't rest it and you slice into it, all the juices will just spew out and then the meat's just gonna be really dry. Yeah. Yeah. So a lot of us have been there and done that. It's so wonderful to have this conversation with you Winnie. For folks who want to go to your website, it's smoke queen BBQ dot com. Yes. Is that pretty much the same handle for Instagram? Yeah. I smoke queen BBQ. I intentionally did that Instagram, Facebook, TikTok. I have a Twitter account, but I don't know how to use Twitter yet. Well, you've got a few things on your plate anyway. Yeah. All right. Well, I am so so thrilled for how you've been able to harness all your energy that the pandemic kind of made idol. Yeah. And it's turned in a very short period of time for any kind of restaurant business. It's really turned around and critics are singing its praises. You're selling out every week. I feel bad for all the listeners outside of Southern California who love barbecue because you're not going to mail it to them. But I am kind of trying to really okay, all right, so if you do get into that, they can find that on your website. Every update is through Instagram. I have so many subscribers. Email subscribers, but I just don't have the time to make it a newsletter, but anytime I have anything new, it's always through Instagram because it's so check Instagram. Yeah, because even changing your web page, which you manage, that takes more effort than Instagram. I have to sit down at a desktop to do that. Yeah. Where is your phone? You can do Instagram of this. Yes. You have brought barbecue to Southern California. You've added a little bit of your cultural palate to it, which I think is wonderful. And I love the fact that you have given yourself permission as you launch into this whole new area of cooking to say, well, I'm going to make it my own. Yep. Right. And we'll just let the market decide and so far the market is deciding they love it. They love it, they love it. So listeners out there, if you're in Southern California, check out smoke queen BBQ, especially on Instagram. Go to the website to order. Get your order in early. And make plans because this stuff is really good. No, last thing is it true. This other rumor that I heard that you're working on a lap cheong. Recipe. I kinda am, but that's going to take some time because before I put anything out I really want to test it out. I did do a lap cheong last week. I didn't not sell it. And then I stuffed it like a regular textile sausage and I smoked it like a sausage. And I don't know, I don't know if the market's ready yet..

"Rice up a notch. So that's why I decided to add cumin. Cumin is also in Chile, which makes it taste very delicious. So it goes really well with beef. It goes well with pork. It's just a very all around neutral spice that it goes well with a lot of different proteins. So those ribs, we smoke it for about three hours. And then we glaze it with our House made barbecue sauce. We wrap it and then we smoke it some more for it to tenderize. So this barbecue sauce, which is not available right now, was actually made with fresh peaches. A lot of Jack Daniels whisky. Yes. That's the oomph I was talking about. Yeah. Right? Yeah. So I've got Worcestershire. I've got brown sugar. I've got the acid from the tomatoes. And then the whisky is the acid and the oomph. The sourcing for the pork. Is that a specific kind of hog? So I'm kind of a snob. I like to eat clean food. You know, I as much as I can, right? Barbecue is already a very decadent and rich cuisine. Even though it's not great for your arteries, you can rest assured that the means that I use our antibiotic free homo free all natural. And so I work really hard with my supplier to source these kinds of meat. The other part of this thinking was that you could go to the market to bonds or smart and final and get your rack of ribs. But you can't get the kind that I'm sourcing because those are commodity cork. And so those. So it means like it's like from multiple farms and then you have a distributor or a processor, they actually get the meats from all different farms all over the country. And you don't know where these meats are coming from. You don't know what breed they are. So sure. Just like dogs and cats, you know, pigs and cows come in different breeds. The breed I use is dorok and.

"Tradition that was passed down from our father or grandfather and then these are recipes that we have to do. There's nothing bad about it. You know, being a purist Barbie cure or a smoker and being somebody who thinks outside Fox, they're great, both ways are great. So to me, there's really no wrong way of doing barbecue. As long as you like it. I mean, what I hear you're saying when he is some of us and in your case, you didn't grow up in the barbecue box in the traditional southern barbecue box. And you have the option and you could have just learned inside that box. You could have entered the box, but again, this is what I'm marveling at about you. And it's not the introvert, you know, subservient Winnie. It's like, okay. Well, I'm going to turn this disadvantage or this difference into something that's distinctive. Yes. Yes. Right. Yes. Well, initially, when I first started, I was very shy about in my Instagram post. I wouldn't post myself. I wouldn't post anything about culture or ethnicity and it's just about the meat, you know? And I didn't want people to know that I was using a trigger. And because I had ordered my offset smoker and it takes months to get here, you know? Because they're all custom made. And I didn't want them to know who I was and who's the pitmaster and what we stood for. And I was really shy. And then when I did pop ups, you know, people were asking me like, so what kind of what are you smoking? I'm like, oh, Hickory. Oh, God. Whatever the palate bank says. You know, I was really shy and I didn't want to. I wanted to fit in, right? I wanted because I wasn't very confident in that industry. Now I was like, I don't give a shit anymore. Yeah, right. I'm just doing my thing. If you like my food grade, if you don't like it, don't buy it again. Love it. Love it. And that's it, you know? I mean, I just want to share my recipes with everybody. Not my recipes, but my food, right? I was like, wait a minute. Like, did you actually give that Texas guy? Did you give him some of your recipe for your dining room? I was like, come on, dude, that's asking for too much. No, I didn't. But you know anybody can reverse engineer recipe. But for the listeners out there, this is what I do when I make a recipe when I make my sauces and so forth. I always balance it out. So you want to make sure it's savory, sweet, acidic, fat, or some sort of, yeah, you have to add some fat in there somehow. And then that oomph, you know, that umami flavor. And that's how you balance your flavor profile with those 5 sources. Well, you've definitely done that. I would love for you to walk us through your menu. Okay. You gave my family and I this treat of the sampler tray, which had almost everything. I'm gonna start with my family's favorite. Okay. Which was your pork ribs? Okay. I love this fruity sauce that you gave us to put on there. So start us there. What makes this rib so delicious? So this rib is a spare rib that we smoke with our all purpose barbecue rub, which I developed. It's very simple. It's just pepper salt garlic, paprika cumin. A lot of Texas style barbecue. Guys would just do salt and pepper. You know, I'm a little fancy. I'm a little extra. So I put a little bit. I like garlic on everything. And a lot of paprika never hurts anybody. So I start with cumin. Because I usually, when I go to my Chinese noodle place, I get the little lamb skewers. It's just covered with cumin. Yes. And so I don't remember growing up in a Cantonese house that I knew that my parents were using cumin. What was the thinking for you to add this to your rub? So I love Indian food and cumin is in Indian food. And my husband's Indians, so my mother in law cooks for us once in a while when she visits. Wonderful. So she makes this basmati rice, which is just plain basmati, but with Cuban seeds. And just a little bit of oil, which actually insult, I can see baby. And just a little salt. And it actually brings a.

"Grade, you got to do a water pan. And then the top rate is where you put your brisket. See, I've never attempted a brisket. It comes out pretty nice. You just put it in at 12 midnight and then the next day, it's ready to run. But you know, I kept on trying and trying and I kept on going out and trying to find a brisket to practice with. Then finally, August 2020, my friends and family were telling me, why don't you post online? Why don't you start on Instagram account? Why don't you just start selling? Because I had nothing to do. My businesses were still closed. I didn't know what was going on. I was home. My kids were home. I was kind of going out of my mind, especially with two little kids trying to zoom. And so that's what I did. August 2nd, 2020 was my first sale. If funny enough, I met my customer in front of Lucille. I don't know why it's allocation. I just was looking for a centralized location near a freeway exit and it happened to be at the mall or Lucille's was. Okay, can I just say that the way you describe that? That must have looked like either a drug deal or a Craigslist deal. Yeah, it was pretty risky. It seemed pretty risky. You know, at that time, a lot of people were doing these kind of like parking lot deals, right? And we were trying to be contactless and it was really awkward because at that time we forgot how to socialize. We weren't supposed to like shake hands anymore or bump this. We're not supposed to touch each other, and it's like, hey, are you here looking for barbecue? Okay, here's your order,.

"The ambient air is different, the humidity is it different, we're cooking with live fire. I use white oak. Other pitmasters use other Woods, but it's outside. It's not in a controlled environment. And I think the challenge is the best part of it. It's the fun part of it. Now see, I would think that there would be other people started with myself that the non repeatability of what you just described with drive some of us crazy. And yet you see it as this wonderful challenge. It does drive me crazy, believe it. Okay. Because you know, we are smoking meats that are cuts from live animals. Every single animal is different. They're like people. People are different, you know? So it's like the same coat of meat from the same breed and sometimes the result varies. It always varies. And I think the challenge is to try to emulate and repeat that process and try to have as much consistency as possible. That challenge is what keeps me going and that keeps my ambition going. And, you know, not everybody's built like that. Not everybody could do that. Well, you've already given us two factors that put you in the unexpected category for pitmaster and that is your your height and your relatively small size but then there's the Asian face. So it's Asian female. So that is very unexpected. And so I'd love to hear the story about how someone like yourself started doing this. I mean, I don't think this is your first restaurant rodeo. But, you know, how did you end up in the pit? So I'm a restaurant tour by trade for the last 12 years. I've owned and operated a couple of restaurants by the Anaheim convention center and when the pandemic hit, we were forced to shut down indefinitely..

"Reading and welcome to Asian America that Ken fong podcast where our mission continues to be to invite Asian American culture makers and shapers to share their stories with us. And as always, I'm your host, Ken fong. Welcome to episode number 349. I was just looking at our host site, which has all the stats of all the years we've been putting up this weekly show. And we are now at 549,000 990 total listens over the span of this show. That means, with just 11 more listens, we are going to cross the magical mystical 550,000 threshold. That to me is quite remarkable. Now to put things in perspective, very popular shows, like Joe Rogan's podcast on Spotify, they get like a million or more listens per episode. But he's also got like a $100 million contract. So that's a funky comparison. 80% of the podcasts out there actually get a hundred or fewer listens per episode. We wouldn't be getting to this threshold. If that was the way our episodes were performing. And so thank you so very much for being out there. And listening and sharing this podcast with your family and friends, it really makes a big difference. I'm seeing more followers now on our Instagram channel because I now post every episode. It's very, very exciting. If you're one of the folks that has helped this number grow, that means you love this show and you see it as adding value to your life. And so I just want to encourage you. If you have yet to leave a review and read us with 5 stars on iTunes, which is our biggest platform for our listeners, or any of the other platforms that are out there that you happen to use, please do so. And I would also encourage you to go to Patreon dot com and join the small but growing circle of my patrons. Every little bit helps. And I can feel the support as we're starting this new year. So thank you to all the folks who have become patrons or who have made donations to the PayPal portal. I know you're out there. I feel your love and your enthusiasm. I'm just relying on all of your listeners to help us to continue to grow our audience. My guess this episode is Southern California's very own pitmaster Winnie Yi lakhani, AKA the smoke queen of barbecue. Train is a pastry chef and already an experienced restaurateur. When he found herself with a lot of time on her hands, when the pandemic shut down her two Orange County restaurants in 2020. Unlike most of us, she decided to use that downtime to learn the very unique craft of smoking various kinds and cuts of meat. And less than two years later, her online order barbecue business now sells out every week in Orange County and Los Angeles. She is already planning a bricks and mortar restaurant to hopefully open by the end of this year. Her skills have also cut the attention of barbecue experts, food bloggers, and both local and national television shows, and she was generous and gracious enough before I interviewed her to cop me one of her sampler trays, which pretty much had almost everything that she smokes, except for her famous crispy skin, roast pork. I just got to tell you, her skills are legit. Her meats are delicious. They're done to perfection. So you can imagine how excited it was to talk to this very unique pitmaster who had made my family and me, very happy, one Saturday night. But before we get to that conversation, I thought maybe this story I could share with you has something to do with eating since I think that would tie into this conversation I had with Winnie. You know, I might have been way back in my undergraduate years. But for most of my young adult years, I actually didn't have a habit of seeing a dentist on a regular basis. It wasn't because I have any fear of going to the dentist. It was just kind of not on my radar. It was not kind of a pressing concern or habit that I had built into my life. Well, when I finally did go visit a dentist, I was told that I had a serious case of receding gums. I had to go see a specialist who did some very painful root planing, and then he cut portions of my hard palate and grafted it, sewed them onto my gums to try to cover down to the enamel line and some of my teeth. Well, you don't go through a process like that. If you're smart and just go back to your bad habits that got you to that place. So I began to get my teeth professionally cleaned every three months. Well, about a dozen years ago my dentist and I were concerned about the misalignment of the midline on my byte. So you have the incisors on the top and the bottom and that center line right down the middle it didn't line up. And they had lined up for a long time, but it was getting worse. And the thing that really prompted this was that it was misaligning the cusps on my molars and because I grind my teeth at night. This was causing where on the cusps and he was concerned with the amount of pressure I think it's like 300 PSI that people typically exert when they're sleeping and clenching their teeth that with this misalignment of my cusps, it could actually cause my enamel to start popping off my teeth. You know, I thought receding gums was a problem. This sounded even worse. So in my 50s, about a dozen years ago, he convinced me to put braces back on my teeth. Now I haven't had braces since junior high school. Back in those days, you would be told by your orthodontist to put a retainer on. For about three years. After that, they say that's not necessary. So I didn't. And not only did my midline missile line, but my teeth started to shift little by little until they were no longer as straight of these as they used to be when they first took my braces off way back when. He said, well, that's a good thing too..

"What is it about that you think differentiates them in this space that it's quite progressive to say that you're you think that an oil and gas firm is exact right place to be in looking at decarbonization the energy transition. I actually think that if we want to play a critical role getting to the paris alignments the carbonized energy systems. We need to walk energy companies. I think that's the first element brooches you conscious decarbonize energy systems by walking with companies. But if we really want to get the pass alignment winnie talks support such as us which energy plus industry transport represents seventy percent of global emissions. So we need to really work with companies such as Gas companies to actually help them decarbonised in. Go along that journey. So i i don't see joining a company such as vpn Gas company which is committed to she decarbonising as a progressive jenny. I think it's actually very much lines towards the ambition on the purpose in terms of what is unique about ep.

Fed’s Corporate Bond Buying Foresaw a Year of Covid Pain

"A year ago. The twenty third of march twenty twenty early. On as you're know in the days of this pandemic when maybe not all of us understood how much trouble we were gonna be in public health wise mental health wise certainly and economic health wise as well and we begin today of last year because we marked two milestones on this tuesday first of all the stock market low of the pandemic. It's been basically straight up since then. I know not the economy. Thank you we offer that. Just as a marker also a year ago today the federal reserve said it was going to step in and start buying up corporate bonds. That was and is a big deal. The fed getting into corporate dead didn't because the market for that debt just frozen and the fed was helping those companies borrow at lower rates which can be conducive to business and borrow they did. Corporate debt had records in twenty twenty but with rising interest news of late. As we've been telling you corporate debts been getting a little bit more expensive. Marketplace's justin ho gets us gone. Investors think about corporate bonds. Kind of like how they think about government bonds. If you're going to lock up my money for years you better pay me enough interest to make it worth my while. They want to be earning a rate of return that is higher than expected inflation. That's winnie caesar. at wellsfargo. She says many investors expect inflation to pick up this year. People are likely to spend more and that spending good drive up prices not just for regular consumers but for companies to it could be that accompanies cost of labor is increasing. It could be that. A company's cost of just raw materials and commodities is increasing. Those expectations are causing. Corporate bond yields to rise. But they're also signs of an improving economy says kathy jones chief fixed income strategist at charles schwab. Which underwrites this program. Jones says corporate borrowing costs are historically low and even though they're currently rising that shouldn't be an impediment to them investing and continuing to grow the business. The concern says stephen davidov salomon uc. Berkeley is if rates continue to grow into next year or the following if rates get too high. He says companies won't be able to borrow as much to a fun. Projects investment will slow because investment becomes more costly fed chair. J. paul said today although he expects prices to creep up this year he doesn't think that will have a big or lasting impact on overall inflation.

'Coming 2 America' Goes Heavy On Nostalgia

"Too heavily on nostalgia. Unless you're a huge fan of Eddie Murphy's classic 1988 film coming to America, and lots of people are there's not going to be a lot for you, and it's less than inspired sequel Coming to America. We celebrated her 30 years absolute and prosperity. 30 Years of service. Well, great nation on 30 Years off Delicious fast food. The new film begins with Murphy's Prince Akeem Joe Fair, opening a fast food restaurant called McDowell's in the African Country of Amanda Devote ease of the first movie. No. This chain is owned by Akin's American father in law, played by John Amos, who denies his business is in any way a rip off of another well known burger joint. They've got egg mcmuffins way that a mixed up in this way are also celebrating my new beyond big mix burger, So there's no meat. There's no meat. Maybe we're getting much better with Pepsi Call Max here are subtle as a sledgehammer. This scene mostly gives us an excuse to see Amos and Louie Anderson, who also appeared in the first film, The Story of the original movie was a black centered fairytale. Murphy's a keen came to America, Queens, New York, of course, tow avoid an arranged marriage and find true love in the new movie. After the death of his father, King Akeem discovered he fathered a son unknowingly in America. Teams return to Queens brings one of the Sequels funniest moments when he revisits a local barber shop where movie magic allows Murphy and costar Arsenio Hall to play multiple parts. Just like in the first film can't be both famine and blood. Damn, Nelson Mandela and Winnie just discovered that I may have a bastard son here in this land conceived during my last visit. How much data supports you getting from the King pays no child support. No time for 30 years and you came back. You're the damn it. Comic Jermaine Fowler plays the sun. Lovell Johnson, who brings King a came home to meet his mother marry played by Saturday night Live alum Leslie Jones. My African I told you he was gonna come back. So you know this man. I definitely know this man. I know this man all the way live much as I love Leslie Jones, she and levels. Other American relatives, including Tracy Morgan, as his uncle Come off is uncomfortable stereotypes as King Akeem introduces his son to the moonda and pressures him into an arranged marriage. Comedy gets clunkier and more predictable, like a Mel Brooks style parody of the Black Panther of The Lion King and the first coming to America. Ultimately, this coming to America is mostly an excuse to bask in the glow of characters who's shown so much brighter and distinctively. 33 years ago. I'm Eric Deggans.

"No kyo remember there. Were going to change these up so again. I think you've slowly seen all the takeaway besides peter pan. I think just because it's so popular and this was an opportunity for them to make fantasy land. Magic kingdom is own entity instead of just a copy of disneyland but when you think about fantasy land and the purpose of it so walt's original vision was that there were three emotions that needed to be satisfied by the three darker is in this land fun adventure and fear fear. Snow white scared adventure adventures peter pans flight and so fun was satisfied by mr toad. Wild ride so the question poses itself does the mini adventures of winnie. The pooh satisfy the element of that. Walt wanted and i think as we get into storytelling. We're gonna circle back to that. Because i do think that's important to kind of keep that groundwork in mind but i feel like until we talk about the story. We can't really answer that so table that i'm glad you brought it up but this is when They opened the many adventures of the so. It opened in june nineteen ninety nine and because it was taking over the space of mr toads wild ride. The imaginary is like they've usually do they put too little tributes to the original ride here and i love it when imagine here do this because i just think it's very thoughtful of paying them on to what was originally there especially for disney lovers and those who were upset that it's gone me personally. I'm not upset that it's gone that i know others don't really well. We're very vocal. To about our mr toads wild ride experience so boas wild. Both of the little easter eggs are in owls house. So one is a portrait on the wall that shows mister toad. And he's hanging over the deed to the house to al and the other is a portrait of pool apu and moley and that's lying on the floor you can see that's been knocked off the wall. And so this is another spot. Where there's a weird connection between the wind in the willows. Which is the original inspiration behind mr toad and moley and a mill. So a mel is obviously now most notably known for writing. Winnie the pooh but really. The bulk of his life in the bulk of his work was dedicating to being a playwright. And so if you look at all of his literary work. He wrote way more many plays than he did anything else. And one of the plays that he did was an adaptation of the wind in the willows which is called toad of toad hall which he wrote in nineteen twenty nine..

"Loud and proud. So that offered history that about sum it up as far as the winnie the pooh stories. I know you're going to cover the attraction history. Yes that's true so we're gonna get into the ride history next because of course that was kind of the next step once disney acquired it. You know they started making movies. Which were a huge success and because of just the rave reviews and the popularity of the film adaptations. This was kind of you know that light bulb moment for imagine years where they're just like we have to build this ride we have to have a winnie the pooh ride and initially. They had wanted to put it in disneyland's fantasy land. That was just kind of their goal placement. Initially and they started to make plans in the nineteen seventies however it just never came to be for whatever reason It didn't work out. No one really knows why in that initial stage. It didn't work out but when fantasy land was unveiled in nineteen eighty. Three in disneyland. It wasn't there Later the idea came back into play that they still wanted to do a winnie the pooh ride but now they had thought that they were going to put this. Attraction in mickey's toontown. So this point we're still talking about disneyland. And they wanted this ride to have spinning cars that traveled through the most popular scenes from the movies and again the ride never came to be but a fun fact is they did take those ride vehicles the spinning cars and they were later used for roger rabbit cartoon spin which we have talked about. So if you haven't listened to that episode out highly recommend it early ones. I feel like it was that has quite interesting story to just because it's roger rabbit of course however everything did start to change when plans were getting approved for the new park which were magic kingdom in walt disneyworld and this is where imaginary finally had some space to do the things that they wanted to so they had kinda tabled winnie the pooh for a long time. So this is several years now in the future so we are kind of jumping from nineteen eighty three now to nine hundred ninety nine so everything was tabled after things in disneyland workout and now the imagine ears wanted to take over the space that had originally held mr toads wild ride and again this is pretty controversial because this was one of the original attractions in magic kingdom and this goes back to a lot of discussion that we had for snow white's scary adventure and so when they decided they were going to build magic kingdom. Walt passed away of course before they could finalize all the plans in originally they were not going to do a complete carbon copy of disneyland fantasy land. They were instead going to change up the rights and so snow white is going to be sleeping beauty instead of peter pan. It was going to be..

What do you think will happen when one of those clinical trials demonstrate that it is affective do think we can all run to the pharmacy next door. We get the product. We take out masks and go back to french. Kissing no finding effective is just one step in this big fights because there is a difference between the existence of a product and access to the products. And now you're thinking all she means other countries will have to wait well. No that's not my point. Not only others may have to wait but any of us may have to the humbling thing about covid. is that because of its speed and magnitude. It's exposing all of us to the same challenges and giving us a flavor of challenges. We're not used to remember when china got into lockdown. Did you imagine that you would be the same situations few weeks. After i certainly didn't let's go to the theoretical moment when we have a vaccine in this case the next access challenge will be supplied. The current state of the global community is that by the end of twenty twenty one. So that's over a year. After the discovery of the vaccine we would have enough those to cover one to two billion of the eight billion of us on the planet. So who would have to wait. How do you think about access when supply short scenario number one we'll let the market forces play and those who can pay the highest price. It'll be the fastest to negotiate deals will get access to the product. I it's not equitable at all. But it's a very likely scenario scenario number two. we could all agree based on public house rationale. Who gets the product first. Let's say we agree that healthcare workers would get it first and then the elderly and then the general population now let me be a bit more provocative scenario number three countries who have demonstrated that they can manage the pandemic. well would get access to the product. I it's a little bit extrapolated. But it's not complete science fiction years ago. When the supply of high-quality second-leg berkeley's drug was scarce a special committee was established to determine which countries had health systems. That were strong enough to ensure that the products would be distributed properly and that patients would follow their treatment. Plants property those select countries got access. I or scenario number four. We could decide on the random rule for instance that people get vaccinated on their birthday. Now let me ask you this. How does it feel to think of future whether vaccine exists. But you would still have to wear a mask and keep your kids home from school and you would not be able to go to work the way you want because you wouldn't have access to that product every day that has feel inacceptable rights but guess what there are many diseases for which we have treatments and even cures and yet people being infected and die every year. Let's take us. Ten million people infected every year. One point five million people dying although we've had a cure for years and that's just because we haven't completely figured out some of the key access issues equitable access is the right thing to do. But beyond this humanitarian that i hope we are more sensitive to now that we've experienced it in our flesh. There is a health and then economy cognizant to equitable access. The health is that as long as the virus is active somewhere. We're all at risk of reported cases. The economy argument is that because of the interdependencies in our economies no domestic economy can fully restart if others are not picking up as well think of the sectors that rely on global mobility like aerospace or travel and tourism. Think of the supply chains that cut across the globe like textile automotive. Think of the sheriff of the economy. Gross that's coming from emerging markets. The reality is that we need all countries to be able to crush the pandemic instinct. So not only is equitable access. The right thing to it is also the smartest thing to do

Best Of Getting Great Growth In Business With Facebook Groups with Marc Mawhinney

"Welcome everybody. I'm your host Brian Basilico. And this is the podcast where you learn to make your business Sizzle online. So are you ready to fry up some new business? Hey everybody. I've got a great guest in a friend. His name is Mark Winnie and Mark is a coach's job and the man has been a Content generating machine. So I wanted to introduce you to him and his methodology. So Mark, how you doing, man? Hey Brian, I'm doing good. So, how's life up in Canada? Home life is going very well. I can now get out of the igloo. It's getting to that time of year, you know two weeks of Summer coming up in Canada. Now, it's it's beautiful. I'm half very happy that song. Dude, so what I'd like to start out doing is getting people to know who is Mark. What's your background? And how did you get from where you were to where you are now, so can you tell us? Yeah, I mean my background the shortcomings version as I got into real estate right out of University, you know back when I was a spring chicken. I'm Twenty-One years old and build up my real estate business for over a decade throughout my twenties just work my you-know-what off and work work work and things grew and business was doubling every year and and things are going great. And I had a lot of you know highs and accesses at that time, but I also had my share of failures I had to business closures over, you know over that decade. Now one of them was really bad not that there's ever a good business closure but one of them had employees and it got messy cuz in my part of the world every single time, there's a business clothes that could be restaurant. It can be a bookstore or anything that a lot of people attacking. Business owner. Yeah, like it's their fault. They planned it right? Cuz that's what people plan to do open a business and closet. So I dealt with the slings and arrows of that but actually worked out well that, you know led me to coaches because I needed help to get back on my feet and I hired several coaches and and had mentors and really just fell in love with whole concept of coaching and that's what led me into coaching and now he's coaching for three years. So yeah, that's awesome. So Mark you you've really been like this content creation machine you started out with like a podcast today. I think it was on episode somewhere around 1:50 and then close to 400. And so you've built up some really really great basis on Facebook with two different Facebook groups. Can you talk about the evolution of how that happened and what they've done for your business? Yeah. I mean, I'm a huge fan of Facebook groups. I just I love them. So I have two main I have other groups for you know, my coaching programs and stuff smaller groups for the people that are dead. Ask the clients but I have two main groups. So I have my natural-born coaches pass gas Group, which you're a member of and that's for anyone who's been on my show. So I've got as a recording Us by 430 episodes and we've got three hundred and some people that are in that group. So that's that's one group the group that's larger and even more activity though, cuz it's open to any coaches or people interested in coaching is the coaching jungle and I believe you're you're a member in there as well. So thank you. So the coaching jungle groups the other one and we're up to almost 2,000 right now and that's happened really quickly roughly six seven months. It's grown without any paid advertising that's all organic and kind of word-of-mouth are so if anyone wants to check that one out, they could go to the coaching Jungle Juice con will direct you there. Awesome. So having these two groups in this podcast, how is this helped or affected your business? I think it's made it a lot easier to to group your tribe. Gather so Facebook's my playground. I mean some people are linked in people. I'm on there and you know, I've got 60,000 Twitter followers. So I'm fairly active on Twitter but really Facebook is my big box where I play and my personal profiles at that 5,000 cap that limit that you have the problem is if I was just talking to the personal profile of got people on their lot of coaches. Yeah, but there's also a lot of people doing other things that don't have any interesting coaching and those are my people that's my Niche I help coaches build their businesses. So it wouldn't get the same traction but by building up a community like the coaching jungle groups, a lot of people together who are my people, you know, and even if not saying that every single person is going to become a client obviously but a number of them have or they referred people over or at least I'm learning stuff right like everyday. I'm jotting down stuff. I'm learning in that group from the people in there. So I just like going forward with social media where it's so noisy with all the platforms and all the different ways that you can reach people. I think that these kind of tribes and groups are going to be even more important cuz it groups people similar to trust together rather than just be kind of scattered all over that platform. Yeah, totally makes sense. So from there. You've got all this traction all these people that you're talking to how hard is it to moderate thousands of people because you know, one of the things as a group moderator, you're always going to get those people just don't understand the rules want to constantly sell promote their stuff. I mean, how do you manage that? Yeah, there's one or two spammers on the internet at maybe three or four I will say with my group of the number of people for having almost 2,000. It's been very good so far now I just added three of men this week as a recording this so I got to a point where this has happened very rare, but rarely, but there's been a couple of cases where someone will send me a message and say Hey, FYI, Joe just put a bunch of porn on a thread, you know or something like some idiot post porn links or whatever wage. Maybe he was hacked or you know, maybe it was him. But for whatever reason he can't have that on there and I can't watch all the time cuz I'm busy with my clients and what the podcast and with everything else. So I did bring on Thursday and then and the cool thing there is it's three that I trust and there are people that I know they've always been active in the group one of them's in the UK so she's at a different time zone than I am. I'm I'm in a weird time zone in Atlantic Canada. I'm an hour past later than Easter. So she's four hours later than me. So it means if somebody decides to make it, you know, put a bunch of corn stuff up in the middle of the night when I'm suggesting chicken catch it. So overall what the really big thing for the coach and jungle why it's been so easy to manage up to this point is I've kind of had a no-nonsense policy around people selling and people spamming

How I Built This

07:58 min | 1 year ago

Jennifer Neundorfer of January Ventures

"And today we're gonNA hear from Jennifer new door for she's the CO founder and managing partner of January ventures. It's an investment firm focused on tech startups founded by women and people of Color Jennifer join me to talk about how her company is approaching investment strategies during this unprecedented moment and how they differ from other firms overall. What we're doing differently is really building a venture firm that is designed around access and transparency. That's not what venture has traditionally been known for, and it's what has really under served winning and underrepresented founders, and so we make it very easy for founders to pitch us and find us in everything that we do is focused on removing friction for those founders at the early stage and what type of startups do you look for? We invest primarily in tech enabled talker businesses. So we are investing in companies that we believe can be high growth scalable companies that are going to be capitol efficient. We are investing the capital early and then are looking for outsized return. So we're looking for companies that can go on to be hundred, million, billion dollar companies, and really be those outliers that generate returns for our fund and. You you invest in the in the seed stage. In the early stages of a business we invested the precede seed stage and what are the reasons that we do. That guy is when we started January, we did some early research and there had been a lot of data talking about how how little venture dollars women receive in two thousand, nineteen female only teams received just three percent of. Venture dollars, and if a woman happened to have male co founder, she received eleven percent of venture dollars. But what we found in our data as we look just at the earliest stage is that there's not only a gender gap, but it really starts early. So for every dollar that a male found raises at the precede or seed stage, a woman raises thirty eight cents and a black. Woman just two cents, and so that is really where we are focused to January. Because as you imagine a dollar versus thirty eight cents on the dollar versus two cents on the dollar, many of those are handicapped from the start, and so our focus is on getting them the capital and resources that they need to really generate momentum for their business and get to that scalable growth curve. How large is your fund right now? Yeah, we're deploying out of the twenty million dollar fund. Were typically writing checks that range up to half a million plus because we're investing stage when founders are raising. Two hundred fifty three hundred up to a million dollars on a really at those earliest ages and often the first capital in. And who who are your investors. Are Investors Range. So many of them are the typical investors that you would expect to see family offices, high net worth individuals, and some institutions and foundations. But from the beginning my partner Marin, I wanted to be very deliberate about who are investors are limited partners were because. So much of the traditional venture model has relied on a very small set of investors or limited partners and has reinforced this flywheel around making that small group very wealthy, and so what we have done in both of our funds is proactively reduce the barriers for nontraditional investors to invest in our funds whether that is a founder who is just beginning to. Capital Wealth and may not have a lot of equity and finding ways for them to participate or pitching LP's who follows height of the the traditional circuit that most funds pitch. You know whether it's by geography ethnicity we've really tried to work hard to diversify our alkies. How do you find startups to to invest in? I mentioned that venture has been so long on really inaccessible to most founders and a lot of that is because many venture capitalists rely on their network to source deals, and that's fine. But most of the people that are in someone's network look or are similar to similar characteristics who that person we hear a lot of talk about the tests Cana found her get a warm intro to them, and if so then they're willing to consider taking meeting. We turn that on her head at January, and so from the day that we launched, we have been open to cold pitches and when we went out with that, many of our peers told us you're crazy. We weren't gonNA see great pitches. There was no way we could handle that certain volume. And we were pretty overwhelmed. When we launched in October two, thousand eighteen, we saw four hundred pitches within the first week and so very quickly we leverage technology to develop a scalable way to review those deals were very generous with the first thirty minute meeting. We want Martin I want to be the first people at our meeting these founders right we want to be the ones who are judging whether they are a fit for a thesis, and then we have a higher bar for. Who we spend time with who we due diligence on and ultimately invest in because the nature of our businesses there's a very wide top of funnel, and in any given fun were making twenty five thirty investment. So there is pretty Winnie in process but were deliberate in the organizations that we work with to make sure that we are reaching founders that really fit that underrepresented mold and telling them that are light is on and we WANNA be fund of choice for them so tummy. Tell me some of the startups in your portfolio. Yeah. This is the part that I love talking about it sort of talking about your kids on. And it's hard to pick just one but I'll you a sense for some of them. We are investing problems that we believe are big and we really care about solving were really focused on investing in companies that are addressing big broad problems that are going to shape the future, and so one of those founders that is really doing this is a founder Julia. Collins, who is the CEO of the Company Up Planet Forward Julius founder who has deep roots in both food and sustainability and great founder market. That's something that we look for a lot and Julia is building a regenerative supply chain for sustainable foods. Just Chris. Quigley you sir. Can You? Can you kind of explain just plain plain language orders a regenerative supply chain me I mean I, I notice supply chain means a note regenerative means. Yeah. That's a great question guy. It's really about the ingredients and wear brands and CPG companies are sourcing the ingredients for their foods and they would basically evaluate the sustainability and on a number of different metrics including the carbon footprint including those ingredients were were actually farmed and then be able to suggest alternate sources and it'll turn it whether it's a different farmer on a different type of ingredient that have the same impact so that I as a brand could make those adjustments and make a more sustainable. And regenerative food product right. So if you were looking for palm oil, for example, this platform could say, Hey, you know this is a better place to source your palm oil from. That's exactly right and they are really the first ones to do that on an what we've seen in the past six months is that consumers union between being at home and suddenly really caring about what food they eat, and then all of the very visible events in the last couple months around climate change and sooners are really starting to There's a there's an acceleration in consumer awareness of climate-friendly foods and being conscious of the choices that they make and wanting to be sustainable.

Can Simple Fruit Peels Revive Dead Land?

"Of IHEART. Pay Brain Stuff Lauren Boban here with another classic episode from Erstwhile Host Christian Sager. This one has to do with some awesome environmental research almost never came to light. I'll let Christian explain. Stuff, it's Christian Sagar. If some of Earth's most barren wastelands could be transformed into dense productive forests by the most unlikely of helpers discarded fruit peels. It sounds like wishful thinking but that's exactly what happened in the nineteen nineties during promising ecological experiment orange juice manufacturer del Oro plunked twelve thousand metric tonnes. It's around thirteen thousand, two, hundred, twenty, eight tonnes of orange peels on top of bleak Costa Rican Pastureland eventually transforming it into a lush fertile forest but it's a success story that almost wasn't told del Oro donated a seven Acre or three. Hector plot on the edge of the WANNA cast t conservation area after being approached by University of Pennsylvania researchers, Daniel Johnson and Winnie. Hell walks who wondered how the company's discarded appeals could benefit the soil in one, thousand, nine, hundred, Ninety, eight, the company deposited one thousand truckloads of orange skins onto the degraded land as part of the agreement but rival Orange Squeezer tico fruit sued del Oro a year into the contract claiming the company was defiling National Park Costa Rica's Supreme Court agreed, and after only two years, the experiment came to a halt. That could have been the end of the story. Were it not for Timothy Truer a curious ecologist at Princeton University in two thousand, thirteen truer and a team of researchers traveled to Costa Rica for unrelated research and decided to look up the orange peel plot. The site sign was so covered with vines in the land. So densely filled with trees that took the team years and dozens of site visits to discover it the team sampled and studied the soil at the site and compared it to samples that were taken in the year two thousand. It also noted tree diameter and species from the Orange Peel site and that of. In Year by pasture that wasn't treated with peels, the researchers found that the treated area had richer soil more tree biomass and a broader variety of tree species including a fig tree with a circumference equivalent to three arm spans. The precise reasons for this one, hundred and seventy six percent increase in above ground biomass are still being investigated but the researchers contend dumping massive amounts of nutrient. Rich organic waste had a nearly immediate effect on the land's fertility changing its lifeless soil into a thick rich loamy mixture. The researchers proposed it's also probable that the orange peel suppressed growth of an invasive grass that was keeping the forest from flourishing. The rediscovery of the experiment, a boon for barren landscapes and agricultural waste, but it also could have a major impact on earth. If more companies institute similar, environmentally friendly solutions to waste the resulting richly vegetated land could help isolate harmful carbon dioxide in the air and improve Earth's polluted atmosphere.

Star Wars the Clone Wars

"We have tim again from Rainbow, comics to talk star wars and should preface. He's not just the Star Wars Guru, but it just happened to be that. That's what we're talking about today, so thanks Tim. We're GONNA. Be Talking some clone worst all right now. No, I love I love the clone. Thanks for having me back I. Don't mind talking about star. Wars at all. I'm definitely the Star Wars Guy at the store I've got a big old tie fighter sitting on the sitting on one of the shelves, and Yeah I love Star Wars up and down left and right but i. do know other things. SO YEAH CLONE WARS! I know when we talked in the past. You're really excited before the final seat. Well I guess, maybe it's going to be the final season of clone wars, but the new one was coming out, and of course by the time you hear this, it's done so I, will let the listener know that there will be spoilers. It's been long enough. I think, and it can goes to the dark side, you guys. I didn't tell him. It's like saying the titanic. Sinks at the end of the move. It does I my dad still loves that movie and He loved the Titanic before the movie came out, but every the movie's been on TV lot lately, and he keeps watching it, and I was like you've seen the movie. I know it's real long. The boat saying. There there we segue into. That anikin goes bad. Anikin goes bad the and thanks for listening you guys. All, right. But I know you loved the series. Mainly a Soka I would say is probably your best most favorite character. You think, man. She's up there and honestly My love really lies with rebels. But I honestly believe my love for rebels wouldn't exist without clone wars, and I think that clone wars an epic. Very much stands on its own It is so grand like even rebels is like four. Seasons. Whereas clone wars we've got. what is it seven seasons and a move at two thousand eight the I? Did you watch it when it first came out or did you catch a little later? I caught the movie win. It came out on DVD. Because they released the first three episodes as a feature, and if you go on like Disney, plus and you watch season one episode one. That's not worth starts. You have to go on Disney, plus specifically I'm going to go ahead and date this podcast right now around. This is not gonNA work in ten years when Disney pluses and the thing anymore but if you go into Disney plus and go under specials. Specials they have star wars. The clone wars. It's like an eighty six minute movie or something, and that actually comes before season one episode one that was released in theaters and Samuel. Jackson is Mace Christopher Lee is count Duku and I think there might be a third like original voice. Okay? I can't remember off the top of my head, but it's interesting because with clone wars being as long as it is. Tom Cain to me is Yoda so in rebels? They bring in Frank Oz to do Yoda's voice in that in. It's really cool that they got Frank Oz. But seeing a Yoda in that style that CG style sounding not like Tom Kaine like weirdly sounded wrong, and it's the original. Yoda and I might be alone in this, but I just just to have. The the iota that I'd heard 'cause I mean. I haven't counted it, but I have to assume Tom kaine probably has more recorded lines as Yoda than than Frank. Oz does so yeah I guarantee you. He does and especially in that visual style, but that's kind of carried. I know rebels in clone wars aren't exactly the stay the same, but stylistically there's a there's a theme that goes that over rice all of them so. It was just weird rebels to hear Yoda with the original voice, but kind of wanting it to be the voice from Clone Wars I. think that's an interesting legacy in and of itself, that is if a soak is maybe not your favorite I guess, could you let us know maybe your top two favorite characters from condo and I'm sorry. Let me finish. I'm sorry. Honda. Is Is my favorite character and he carries over into rebels. And even there's even a series of kids books, and there's one that's about Hanin chewy with the foul can, and they They have to team up with with Honda I. CAn't remember the name of it off the top of my head, but the audio book is narrated by By, the guy who does voice, who's also Winnie the Pooh and lost Jim Cummings okay. So he voices Hongo in coon, wars and rebels. He does his voice at Galaxies, Edge, theme park at Disney. is Hongo and so there's a whole a whole audiobook. You can just listened to Honda. Tell you a story and it's it's like great. Honda's my absolute favorite.

Teyana Parties Despite Lockdown

"The. Lockdown is over or at least apparently, it is for a lot of famous people for example, Cardi B. and offset just hit up Tiana. Taylor's packed album release party, which by the way offered, has met suits upon arrival, but not much social distancing. Going on here one of your guys. This thoughts on this not a lot of mass happening. I think less than half of the party had masks on, but never had. Done so in the invite to the to the event. It says like we will provide mass and has met suits look I love Yana think you know the album is going to be amazing, but I do feel like this party was kind of irresponsible especially. She just announced that she's pregnant. And there were kids there. It just seems like so many people in one place. And the lockdown isn't lifted yet. It just seems a little irresponsible to me. Yeah! I also think that if you wearing the has met suit half open so that we could see your cleavage or sculpted chess is like riding a bicycle holding your helmet under your arm. It's just it does nothing. Cardiac. Odell Beckham was there were a ton of people there and I did it like people are itching to get outside. There have been some things that have been lifted, so you wanted to get out there and feel normal again and I'm I'm sure that she's so proud of this album, but I think like you know when you're newly pregnant and being around all of these people I just don't understand the logic with this lean awake. was there like every Winnie Harlow like? I'm so confused on this money. Make you a new. The album is called the album which is short for the album that gave everybody respiratory disease, so make sure. Chance congratulations on download the album, but I'm not going to parties like house parties. That's real aggressive. A great guys pay attention

The IGN Summer of Gaming Special

"Right now I'm here with Tina Amini Sam, claiborne and Lucille Brian. WHAT'S UP, everybody? Hey. Hello, there Thank you for joining me on this. Very special edition of Games cube part of June simmer gaining. We've got to talk about Sony's playstation, five future of gaming event yesterday and I give me serve overall impressions. Would you think of the show? Let's start with Tina. It Yeah I. Mean twofold right like I thought the Games were really amazing. They had thirty seven games, which is really impressive There's something exciting about every single one of them. We got to see the actual console design finally just a really big news drop their, and honestly I was just overall impressive with the production value general, especially given you know work from home mandates and working and living through the quarantine, so I thought they did a really good job. That was exciting to watch. Lucy era, a regular cast member of our place in podcast podcast beyond and I know you. did a bunch of pre and post show coverage of yesterday. What were your overall impressions okay? Festival beyond second of all. I thought that the show is great. I think as Tina said that was a great lineup of games. it. Really Tony Really positioned itself as like this is the holiday console these other games. You're only going to get up to get on playstation. Five of them were very family friendly I. Really think that that was a smart play on their part. And you know the console itself. It's wild. It's ridiculous I. Love it I think it's just like it was just really really fun Shar and I. Think Sony is kind of in the late now when it comes to this console racism. I tend to agree with that Sam I know you've been doing a lot of game on xbox. This generation did the conference yesterday. Do Anything to sort of change your mind about where you'll be spending your time. There! There's so many games across both systems that are awesome I think you're gonNA be fine with either system at this point, but man I really liked yesterday's show because I always say this I. Don't really care how the console looks. So there's this looks Kinda goofy and I don't really want it outside of my home console. I kind of want to put it in a cabinet. We'll see how that goes, but I do think. The Games are really important focus on demand. There are such such A. A huge variety of games and one thing that I need to do is start like seeing the previews of these games, which we're doing and stuff like that because I want to see what they look like Super High Rez. Glorious Four K. because I've seen is like my best youtube up. You know and like I can't really see if they look different next Gen, but they look fun and that's awesome. Like. What was it Tina thirty seven new fun games to check out now that so exacly? That's really I can't wait. I was I was a little bit shocked. At how many games there were in the conference yesterday? Also just. It's crazy to think that you know Sony backed out of the three last year. They weren't planning incoming this year, but then gets cancelled and now Sony's back with a three level conference. The Week of Winnie three would have been in like Microsoft is nowhere to be seen. It's disagrees when. Is a wild ride all statement. I. Are So good. They're like they're like so like. Did you just show the trailer? Show that there's nobody walking around and pacing. Honestly I was a little bit amazed that they were able to get. People cut out on black backgrounds for the interviews that they had like. I don't really know how they pulled that off. They look at our crazy steph back here, but they literally pro and I think they did a really good job. Just showing the important stuff and I liked that. So as as the event was going on, and we just kept seeing game after game after game I started to wonder if they were going to show, go the hardware, but of course at the they did at the end revealed the places to five hardware, and it has been It's been. It's been a talking point for sure. If a wildly different council design I'm in the camp I think it's a little a little gaudy and I much prefer the sort of. Silence Classy xbox series design, but I know that a apparently I'm in the minority there. Sixty eight percent of I, raiders say love the playstation five council design. Sam Seems to agree with me. Lucy is a little bit more in favor of it Tina. How do you feel about it? I think I'm in the like ten, or whatever other remaining percent of Jan polled readers that just don't really care. I'm fine with either way. It's going to be the system that I play hopefully the amazing games that they showcased in the conference the other day, and that's the thing that I have my mind most on, and then the controller, which looks comfortable and maneuverable. 'cause. That's obviously the vehicle by which we're experiencing the game, so the console I'll I'll throw it up next to my TV I. Don't mind either way. Yeah it's pretty cool. Very different. That is very different I like the design of the controller a lot. But I think the council. The council's pretty ugly to me. We have a quote from Sony Interactive Entertainment President Jim Ryan explaining the design choice today said the playstation sits in the living area of most homes, and we kind of felt it'd be nice to provide a design that would really grace most living areas. That's what we do and you know. We think we've been successful in that. Jim. My wife would beg to differ with you. There's no way she would let me have. But, like what? What does Jan Ryan's Living Room? Look like if that is kind of like. Just said like an easy thing to slip into it I. Mean I i. just think this design is bonkers. It's basically the of the gaming console equivalent of racing stripes on a car. It's just so silly and I love it. I love it because every other game console the. Being conservative with its design and this is just so ridiculously out there.

"So that's a clip from code by S. joy belum Winnie and explain further what took place here the misidentification the identification on some might perversely say it's better for this technology to fail that so that people can't be identified but this is the opposite case absolutely so you were saying earlier maybe not being identified as a good thing but then there are the mis identifications that have a real world impact so in the clip in in the film you actually see the work of Big Brother watch U. K. and in this particular scenario Big Brother watch U. K. was able to track what was going on in London and one of the things they show to in their study face off was you had false positive match rates of over ninety percent so you see this one example here but they also had reports where more than two thousand four hundred and the sent people wear mismatched so it's not just a case of you're not detected that might be sometimes but you could be misidentified as somebody you're not in the consequences can be great and we're playing this clip at a time when the New York times reports London's police department London's police department said it would begin using facial recognition to spot criminal suspects with video cameras as they walked the streets adopting a level of surveillance that is rare outside China the technology London deploying goes beyond many of the facial recognition systems use elsewhere which match a photo against a database the new technology he's a software that can immediately identify people on a police watch list as soon as they're filmed on a video camera and I think you might need to say attempt to identify because oftentimes the claims that are made about these technologies don't necessarily match up to the reality earlier you spoke about the National Institute of standards and technology study they studied more than one hundred eighty nine algorithms from ninety nine different companies and so this is the majority of the of facial recognition technology that's out there racial bias gender bias age bias as well so if you have a face you have a place in this conversation and we all need to be concerned so I think it's highly irresponsible to deploy the technologies that we already know have significant flaws that we already know can be abused it's common sense to place a moratorium until wed a better place well shot any another place that you profile and the documentary is China and you speak to this woman at some length a so a couple of questions first how did you get access and your response to the fact that she actually supported the credit the what is that the social credit system and explain what that is how it works there and what your senses of the kind of support that the system has in China and then joy along the same lines as what you were talking about earlier in places like China where the artificial intelligence and facial recognition the technology is developed there is there a similar bias and if so what it what is it but for astronomy well and I got access as through local production company in China and I feel that this woman and kind of gave us insight into this social credit system that is coming up in China eight add to sort of where they're using facial recognition in tandem with the social credit system so if you basically they're tracking you know they're watching you there surveilling you and they're scoring and not only what you do impacts your score but what your friends do impact your score and this young woman who I and who is featured in the film says that you know in fact we don't have to trust our own senses anymore that we can rely on the sort of social credit score to actually have integrity and who we trust and who we don't trust arms I think in the film you know we sort of want to think of that that's sort of a galaxy far far away from the US but I'm in the making of this film I saw all kinds of parallels of of that type of scoring that's happening here in the US and in other places around the world what how how you see that it's comparable what could be well as as Amy Webb says so poignantly in in the film we're all being score all the time from our over scores to our Facebook likes all of that information is being tracked and analyzed all of the time and so we're all being rated all of the time and so does that kind of tracking can impact how much we pay for insurance what kind of opportunities are shown to us online and so very much it becomes sort of an algorithmic algorithmic determinism and your so to the question of how are those systems working in China in our first study call gender shades we looked at IBM Microsoft but we also looked at face plus plus billion dollar a tech start up in China and we found the US similar racial bias and gender bias but overall when they've done studies on A. I. systems developed in China they tend to work better on Chinese faces right and those developed in western nations that to work better on western faces as well one thing I did want to bring up related to China and data collection is this data colonialism that we're starting to see we have reports of Chinese companies going to African nations providing Bob facial recognition or surveillance technologies in exchange for something very precious the biometric data of the set us and so on now parallel to what we had with the slave trade right where you're extracting the bodies now you're extracting visual bodies in service of a global trade because even when you talk about what's going on in London they're using technology from a company called NEC that's based in Japan and so you have to really think about the global contact for how these technologies spread around the world and just to add to that China has unfettered access to data it is now been mandated that if you want to access the internet in China you must submit to facial recognition so that has that that is the basis for which they're building this kind of scoring system I wanted to go to another clip from coded by us this is the author of the book algorithms of oppression.
